Assistance Programs

UGI CAP Program

The Neighborhood Center assists Easton residents experiencing difficulty paying their natural gas bill by enrolling them in UGI’s Community Assistance Program. This enables families to pay what they can afford so they can meet more of their other expenses. Often, participants are referred to other services provided by The Neighborhood Center or other providers.   

Please contact Jose Leon at 610.253.4253 or

Social Security Rep. Payee

Social Security, Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income recipients who have difficulty managing their financial resources may use The Neighborhood Center to assist them. Through this program, the agency pays all of the person’s expenses, including a periodic allowance. Conversations with participants will often lead to a discussion of other services offered by The Neighborhood Center or other service providers. Referrals may come from friends or family members, other service providers or the Social Security Administration. The Neighborhood Center charges a small fee to defray a portion of the costs of administering the program.  If it were not for this service, some of the participants would likely face periodic homelessness.  

Please contact Deborah Brown at 610.253.4256 or for more information.

Social Determinants of Health

Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) are conditions in the environment that affect a wide range of health, functioning and quality of life outcomes and risks.  The SDOH Program seeks to identify eligible community members who are in need of assistance in one of three identified areas of need:  transportation, clothing and child care.   

Northampton County MA (Magellan) recipients age 18 and over that have a qualifying mental health or substance abuse diagnosis and who are active in treatment may qualify for child care subsidies and/or transportation and clothing assistance.  Please contact Katherine D. Nieves at 484.280.7409 or for additional information.

Senior Hub

The physical and mental well-being of individuals age 55+ is directly related to levels of social interaction.  The Senior Hub Program seeks to combat social isolation by offering activities at various sites throughout the City of Easton.
